This one was around 40 cm high, but might be that the around uses fertilizers on their fields that could explain that it grows higher. However this plants flowers is pink. But it could be some related species, because it is similar. Thanks @ sue.collins

if that plant is low growing eg up to 20cm it might be Bugle Ajuga reptans. A short creeping plant, it spreads using runners. Often found carpeting damp grassland and woodland clearings
